About this event

Our annual Chief Executives Forum provides the opportunity to exchange ideas and learn from other Chief Executives about the unique demands of managing at the highest level in Local Government in New Zealand.

The event brings together a range of engaging presenters and facilitators who will take you through topics specifically designed to provide you with fresh new perspectives as well as practical ideas that you can then apply to your work in your own organisation.

Attending the event will also give you the opportunity to help us celebrate and recognise the very best in local government management as this Forum is being run on the same day as The Marketplace and SOLGM's annual Gala Dinner.
